    iv had a turborevs smic that i purchased quite a few months ago that i plan on fitting tomorrow, (i know a fmic would have been a better choice for performance gains but i bought this without really doing too much research into other options :keule: )


    i want to run some logs before and after fitting to see if i have made any improvements by fitting this.

    im going to log block 004 which is the intake air temp, are there any other blocks that might be worth logging?


    its a 1.8t aum

    003 - MAF g/s

    115 - Boost (requested vs actual)

    118 - Air Intake Temp

    Hope it all goes well bud :)

    got some logs done this morning, got the ic fitted,
    no results as of yet as the temp rose by 4 degrees between my 2 logging sessions, but on the plus side it has cured my boost leak :yahoo:

    need to modify the ducting to the ic now as the origional one dosnt quite fit, then attempt logging again

    I fitted the same kit a few months ago in my agu and it make quite a difference. I didn't get the chance to log any before and after readings but I am sure there is a substantial improvement to the air temperature.

    Did you refit the ducting, I did some logs with and without it,
    It is defiantly worth refitting it, did take a bit of hacking to get it back on tho

    I'm pleased that it has not got any worse even with the ambient still a couple of deg higher

    (Sorry for the poor quality pic)

    is yours car mapped mate? those inlet temps seem VERY low on a standard SMIC.

    My stage 1 AUM regularly reaches 57-58 degree inlet temps during summer, and still goes over 50 degrees after sustained abuse even in the current cold weather!

    As far as I'm aware it's standard,
    It was slightly raining and I did an off boost cruse just before I did a 3rd gear WOT run on the standard Ic

    Ambient temp was 8 deg c
